We have been to Kefalonia for the last 6 years and find Fiscardo is well worth another visit each time. The drive up from Lixouri is best done early morning(if travelling in August) and the views are spectacular.Fiscardo is a busy little spot and has the attractiveness and interest of older buildings(pre 1953). The museum is well worth a visit if you can find it open. The port is a good starting place for ferries to Lefkada and Ithaca and if one wants to let the world go by..the ferry point is entertainment in itself!!
Lixouri has been our base for the last 6 years and we still enjoy its pace of life and the buzz of the evenings in the square. Our grandchildren adore the cake shop at the top of the square along with Seranos! There are many good tavernas..Zorbas being high on the list for quality food and company. We may see the place through rose coloured specs as members of our family live in the neighbouring area...but we do enjoy the town and its comparitive peace with Argostoli.
